Fat Tuesday, or Mardi Gras, is February 13, 2024! Mardi Gras refers to events of the Carnival celebration, beginning on or after the Christian feasts of the Epiphany and culminating on the day before Ash Wednesday, which is known as Shrove Tuesday. Mardi Gras is French for "Fat Tuesday", reflecting the practice of the last night of eating rich, fatty foods before the ritual Lenten sacrifices and fasting of the Lenten season. Celebrate Fat Tuesday with a 1M 5K 10K 13.1 or 26.2 mile run (or walk). You have all of February to complete your race.
February is also National Cancer Prevention Month. We’ll be donating at least 15% from every registration to the Prevent Cancer Foundation, which is the only US-based nonprofit focused solely on cancer prevention and detection. This organization was founded in 1985 by Carolyn Aldige, who was mourning her father’s passing from cancer. Their efforts in prevention have changed the face of cancer research and treatment.
